Probability and Statistics

10 cards are numbered from 1 to 10 and placed in a box. One card is selected at random and is not replaced. Another card is then randomly selected. What is the probability of selecting two prime numbers?

Trust in God and do the right!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3 : 5-6)

Re: Probability and Statistics

There are 9*10=90 possible combinations. There are 3*4=12 possible prime number combinations: (2,3), (2,5), (2,7), (3,2), (3,5), (3,7), (5,2), (5,3), (5,7), (7,2), (7,3), (7,5). The probability is 12/90=2/15.
